  • Mindil Beach a must place to visit if you are in Darwin. Great choices of food and breathtaking views. It's full of people, culture and has great vibes. There is seasonal Mindil Beach Market. This market is the largest in Darwin and by far one of the best markets I have ever been to.
  • If you're in Darwin you have to see a sunset at Mindil Beach. Get yourself a lime and ginger juice at the market and pick a spot to enjoy the changing colors.
  • One of the most vibrant and beautiful places to visit in Australia and has one if the most besutiful sunsets ive ever witnessed
  • A great part of Darwin culture and there usually is a good variety of stalls & lotsa food choices at reasonable prices with a great northern sunset to go with the beach venue....
  • Great to take visitors to enjoy the experience, but little interest for myself as same old
